Chef for developers - what you need to get started with coding your infrastructure
There's a reason Heroku is so popular. As developers we often prefer to focus on coding (and sometimes providing business value) over setting up and maintaining servers and infrastructure. Setting up a full stack with e.g. apache/nginx, containers/wrappers, permissions, monitoring, alerts etc. can be a daunting task if you have not experienced it before. Even more terrifying is the thought of having to do it all again (from memory, or some patchy notes) if the server crashes or you need to scale out horizontally. From a developer's perspective I'll show you how "easily" you can setup your own servers with Chef.
